You hear the phrase “Life is too short” all the time, but I don’t necessarily agree with that. What I do agree with is that “Time flies by”. Meaning, time moves very quickly, but definitely not to the extent that you can’t tell, or more importantly, show a person that you care about them. Like I stated in a previous blog around the Christmas holidays, you should not wait until Thanksgiving or Christmas to tell a person how thankful you are to have them in your life.
These two poems that I’m posting today are about two of the most important people in my life because I want them to know how much I truly love them.
You are strong and dedicated.
You love what you do and who you have become.
You are a firm believer that hard work pays off,
and rest is barely ever welcomed.
You do what it takes to get the job done; not right,
You love being needed and wanted, and especially
being around those who love you.
And what do I love the most about my Superman?
You are like no other.
I love you Dad.
Your amount of strength speaks volumes.
Devoted and dependable are only some of the
words that best describe you.
You are always there to listen, talk to, laugh,
and to simply be there.
Your pain is my pain and vice versa.
You underestimate your worth at times.
No other mother could compare to you.
You are the best mother and friend anybody
could ever wish for.
I love you Mom.
If you have some parents (not sperm or egg donors, TRUE parents) who mean the world to you like mine do, please make sure that you tell them how much you appreciate and love them more often than not. They of all people should never wonder.
